Isolaz Laser Treatment

The Isolaz® treatment is an exciting and painless in-office acne treatment, FDA-cleared procedure that is used to clear out the pores and kill the P. acnes bacteria, which leads to acne breakouts. There are two components to the Isolaz® treatment, a gentle suction that cleans your pores, and a light that simultaneously destroys the P. acnes bacteria.  In a 2008 clinical study, it was noted that acne continued to improve for three months after a series of Isolaz® treatments.

That same study showed a decrease in both inflammatory (pimples) and non-inflammatory (blackheads and whiteheads) acne and reported that 82% of patients were moderately to very satisfied with their treatment. Isolaz is also very effective at treating acne on the back and chest. Isolaz® acne therapy is proven to be safe for all skin types and skin tones.  Due to the deep cleaning nature and gentle suction of Isolaz®, the treatment can even help your other acne skincare products work better!

What Can I Expect of My Isolaz® Treatment?

Using both a gentle suction that initially cleans the pores and a light that simultaneously kills the acne-causing bacteria, Isolaz® has been shown to help to improve acne within just a few weeks. The process is absolutely painless and as the suction cleanses pores, it helps from a preventive perspective as well. Patients see results in as soon as 24-48 hours. The treatment area appears smoother, refreshed and rejuvenated.

How Does Isolaz® Compare to Prescription Acne Treatments?

Laser acne treatments work more quickly for the treatment of acne than prescription treatments.  Laser and light treatments such as photodynamic therapy and Isolaz® can help to improve acne within a few weeks.
